This paper describes the evidence for high quality training within maternity services using the example of training for managing shoulder dystocia using the PROMPT approach. It identifies key features of excellent training such as understanding underlying concepts, practising manual skills and training as a team rather than individuals and demonstrates how implementing such training can deliver a real impact on patient, especially neonatal, outcomes.
